I've been saying that since jones turned down a fight with Nog,
Jones isn't a fighter so you should be happy the fight is scrapped.

Go and lobby Dana for Sonnen vs Weidman for main event.

On top of that, you started out like the rest of the newcomers and now talks that you are looking for better PPV buys and don't wants to fight Machida but you got a hype machine fighter like Chael that can bring the numbers that you are looking for.

Its not a smart business move IMO if you are looking for money fight. On top of that, you just screwed all your fans that just ready to fly to see you fight and you are not injured but you got a bunch of guys willing to fight you to save the card.

Do you honestly think these other fighters would of gotten more money without a main event and sponsorships?

Think about it.


I didnt say i was clearing Jones and Jackson for all the blame. But to say everything is their fault is not right either, as that is said..

do i think Jon Jones should have taken the fight? Yes i do.When your boss ask you for a favor ofcourse you say yes.
I think Jones needs to remember what UFC have donne for him.. this is a horrible way to treat your own boss and company,this is not how you should act.No doubt a very selfish act!

but we need to remember how Dana is sometimes..i dont trust all what Dana is saying and i surley do not judge somebody just because the one side said it.

There is two sides to this and before i make my judgment i want to wait and se what is being said from booth sides

Oh I would love to hear from the guy who wouldn't fight Jon Jones on 4 months notice has to say about Jones not fighting Sonnen on 8 days notice.

But I forgot nobody has ever refused a UFC fight

Hey anyone remember when people were mad because Jon Jones wouldn't sign toy belts?

You guys didn't want to pay to watch him win (and beat your favorite fighters) now you get to pay in the hopes he'll lose.

Headline fight you say? Book a alternate in advance and be done with canceled fights. Its something they could have easily done with this card.
Yeah because someone is going to dump thousands of dollars into a camp and travel and all the sort of the stuff that goes along with preparing for a fight just so they MIGHT get a fight and thus collect a paycheck.

Yes, that could EASILY be implemented. I mean, who wouldn't want to do that?
